Academic and educational freedom are also in danger.” Budapest: Theater University Students Protest with Barricades after Leadership Resigns Due to Gov’t Restructuring

Thousands protest in Hungary demanding academic freedom for top arts university. Thousand people protested on Sunday for independence of Hungary’s University of Theatre and Film Arts following imposition of government-appointed board, which they say will undermine its autonomy.

The government decided to push for changes in the Hungarian theatrical world last year. In the case of SZFE, it is restructuring the entire operation of the university, supposedly to improve development, increase efficacy, and modernize the institution.

Some ruling party politicians also mentioned that political and ideological differences played a role, as the institution is generally viewed as being liberal by right-wing government circles.
